Steelcase Leap Chair Features

  • Adjustable Lumbar Support: The Leap Chair offers strong lumbar support to ensure your lower back doesn't sag, helping to prevent serious pain and long-term back health issues. The Leap's adjustable lumbar support pad moves up and down easily, allowing anyone to place it in the perfect spot for a healthy, custom fit.

  • Seat Depth Adjustment: Slide the Leap Chair's seat forward and back until you find the best, most comfortable seat depth and lock it into place. The Leap makes it easy to fit the seat's depth to your body and height.
  • Upper Back Force Adjustment: Customize the resistance you feel as you recline in the Leap chair with an intuitive dial on the left side of chair. This makes rocking back and forth more comfortable.
  • Lower Back Firmness Adjustment: Add even more lumbar support by adjusting the lower back firmness, which supports your lower back and helps prevent hunching and lower back sagging.
  • Natural Seat Glide: This features promotes spinal health by allowing the Leap Chair's seat to glide forward as you lean back, which keeps your posture at a supported and comfortable level.
  • Adjustable Arms: The Leap Chair's arms are incredibly easy to manipulate. They move in and out, forward and back, up and down and pivot, so you can find the exact position you need for any task or position.
  • Cooling Comfort: The Leap Chair's back foam and progressive back slat system also keep you cool and comfortable, so you get the breathability of a mesh chair with the superior support of a foam padded upholstered chair.

Steelcase Leap Ergonomic Office Chair
4.5 Stars based on 10 Review(s)
5 Stars

December 7, 2013
I have an ongoing lower back pain from pulling my back muscle too many times. This is a great chair to soften the pressure on my lower back and to maintain circulation in the lower legs. I'm thrilled! Well worth the investment. It came fully built with a beautiful red fabric of my choosing.

5 Stars

Perfectly satisfied; worth the price
July 10, 2013
I was reluctant to spend $715 on a chair, but my previous, inexpensive desk chair was causing me tremendous pain and sleepless nights. Months of damage had occurred before I realized my chair was the culprit. As soon as I replaced it with my Leap chair, I began to heal. I'm almost fully recovered. I love all of the adjustments the chair has, and I've found that by moving and adjusting every hour or so, I can be comfortable in the chair the whole work day.

4 Stars

Almost perfect
April 18, 2013
I bought the Leap chair in leather with headrest. The ergonomics on this adjustable chair are excellent except for one thing. I have a bad hip and the seat padding is just too thin for my hip to be comfortable. I really like the chair other than the excruciating hip pain from the thin seat. Does anyone know of a thicker seat replacement available in the aftermarket?

Steelcase Leap Ergonomic Office Chair
February 9, 2013
I was looking for a chair that would be comfortable to sit in for up to 12 hours at a time and I found it in the Steelcase Leap Ergonomic Office chair. This chair is comfortable, came already assembled and totally adjustable. I purchased the foot stool too and together they make a great combo. The only thing I might have done differently is to have ordered the chair with a head rest. I would recommend this Ergonomic Office Chair to anyone who's looking for comfort while working. Bridget

Leap Chair
April 24, 2012
This chair is amazing! It's the best chair that I've ever had. I have two herniated discs in my neck which have made sitting at the computer for an extended period of time very painful....until now. Because the chair is totally adjustable, I am now sitting and working in an optimized position. I recommend the Leap chair to everyone who "sits" for a living.

5 Stars

Amazing chair!
January 17, 2012
I have had this chair for about a month now. Ordered it with the cloth material, with arm rests and a head rest. I work from home on my computer and my back is very happy I purchased this chair! The adjust ability is fantastic, the seat padding has just the right amount of cushion, and the adjustable amount of recline is awesome. It's a pricey investment, but if you work from your computer 8-12 hours a day it's definitely worth it!

Base is very fragile
November 20, 2010
When I received my Leap chair, the base was broken on arrival. One of the wheels had broken off the base. The problem is in the packaging. The base does not have any cushioning to protect it in transit. Others have given 5-star reviews, perhaps because their bases weren't broken.

i have both leap and aeron. they are both pretty equal comfort and ergonomics. the leap gets a nod because it is more adjustable and the headrest is not available on aeron. GET THE HEADREST when you order if you think of reclining in the chair.

Hop to It
June 9, 2010
Dig the chair and can't believe how fast it got here. My chair arrived in a week after placing order: ordered it on a Monday and it shipped on Friday, arrived the following Monday. The adjustable lumbar support works great- there's a pretty wide range on the amount of support. Fiddled with it for a couple days and think I won't need to adjust it again. didn't like the additional wire you can use to add extra support in my back. I just pushed it down out of the way. Overall, looks fantastic in my work space and is by far the most comfortable chair I've ever owned.

The Perfect Chair
April 4, 2009
This is my second Leap chair, and you will not find a more comfortable or accommodating chair. Loaded with adjustments to adhere to your personal settings, you can't go wrong. It's the Perfect Chair!

  • Completely satisfied with the desk. More impressive was the buying process, knowledge of the sales and support staff, and attention to detail. It's clear that this company is on a mission to help people. They have found a way to differentiate themselves in a crowded market and stand out as a great company which deserves all the success it achieves. We will be adding a second UpLift 900 in the near future. Thank you!
